Clearing Up Confusion About Kodak’s Film Business

Kodak New Portra 160

Though we’ve reported on it before, there has recently been confusion about the fate of Kodak’s film business. Folk who are still loyal to the film are wondering whether or not it will survive and if the quality will stay the same. We talked to Kodak, and we’re going to once again restate exactly what they’re saying.

Kodak’s film business will now be owned by the Kodak Pension Plan, but Eastman Kodak will continue to manufacture the film. So as far as they’re saying, your Tri-X and Portra will still continue to look and function the exact same. At least that’s what Kodak is telling us. There is no other word of how else KPP might affect the manufacturing of film.

If I were you though, I’d stock up.
